***OFFICIAL*** 2013 STL Cardinals Thread

From Bernie's column:

People have asked me why we’re not more emotional,” Matheny said in his office after Sunday’s game. “They say that we look subdued, always intense. That our actions are methodical, robotic at times. That’s what got us here. This isn’t the time to change it.”

It’s hard to argue with the manager’s assessment. The Cardinals finished with 97 victories, most by a Cards team since 2005, and tied with Boston for No. 1 in the majors this year.


Their 54-27 showing at Busch Stadium matches the 1985 team for the best single-season home winning percentage (.667) by the Cardinals since 1944.

A postseason theme has emerged, and it echoes the mantra that surfaced before the start of 2013: remember the fall of 2012. Remember falling to San Francisco in the NLCS.


The Cardinals’ veterans still haven’t forgotten. They still aren’t over it. It’s why Matheny resists GM John Mozeliak’s urgings to smile and put on a happier face.


Here's the most impressive aspect of the Cardinals' division championship: they prevailed over two other outstanding teams, Pittsburgh and Cincinnati.



The 97-win Cardinals were better this year (regular season) than they were in 2011, when they won 90 games, and 2012, when they won 88.
Here are a few numbers that help put the Cardinals' Central title and No. 1 NL seed in perspective:



* Since MLB switched to a three-division format in each league in 1994, this was only the sixth time that a division had three 90-plus win teams. St. Louis won 97, Pittsburgh 94, and Cincinnati 90.
* Since the format change, this was only the second time that an NL division had three 90-win teams. In 2002 the NL West had Arizona (98 wins), San Francisco (95) and Los Angeles (92).
* The 2013 Cardinals faced more esteemed and difficult competition at the top of the division than any of the division-winning teams managed by Tony La Russa.

The Pirates were hardly pushovers; the Cardinals had to work like mad and kick in with a strong finish to put the division away, and didn't clinch until Game No. 160.



The Cardinals went 9-10 against Pittsburgh this season and were 11-8 vs. Cincinnati.


The Cardinals won only three of 10 games at PNC Park in Pittsburgh and split the 10 games at Cincinnati. The Cardinals were 6-3 against both teams at Busch Stadium.


The Cardinals (1st), Pirates (3rd) and Reds (5th) ranked among the top five in wins in the NL. The three teams were among the top 11 in wins in MLB. All three teams finished in the top five in the majors for best overall ERA, and each were in the top five MLB for best starting-pitching ERA.


The original purpose to this piece was to point out that the Cardinals managed to finish with the league's best record while competing in a division that had three 90-win teams for only the second time in the last 19 years of National League baseball.



The Cardinals really earned this.
Thanks for reading ...

That means in 2014 Craig has to go to RF. Beltran moves on in the off season. Taveras plays CF. There is no way that Taveras's defensive play in CF will be so much worse than Jay that it negates having Adams bat in the lineup.

Molina + MRI + knee =

Losing Molina and or Waino are the only ones that could take down our season. Not even in the stadium. Why didn't the broadcaster talk about it? When did it happen?

@LangoschMLB: Molina, bothered by right knee irritation, was unavailable today. Left ballpark late in game for MRI. #STLCards optimistic it's not serious.

You have soreness in your knee since Friday and you didn't take a day off? Your a catcher....knee...hello....anyone home McFly?

Come on Molina there is tough and then there is hurting your team. Try to be a wuss every once in a while.

From the Post Dispatch Goold article
ST. LOUIS • Cardinals catcher Yadier Molina, an MVP-caliber engine behind the team's strong first half, left the ballpark late in Saturday's game to have his right knee examined by team doctors.


Molina was having a scan taken of the joint in order to determine the cause and severity of soreness that started late Friday.
Manager Mike Matheny called it an "irritation."


Matheny said he did not start Matheny and that the catcher was not available during the game because of the discomfort that began during Friday's game. Adam Wainwright said he spoke to Molina and that the catcher was confident with some days of rest he would be alright to play. Wainwright cautioned that he had not heard the results of the test, only talked to Molina.


"We just want to rule things out and get a good look at it," Matheny said.
The right knee is the same knee that Molina had surgically repaired in 2007. An MRI would be needed to determine if there are floating bodies within the knee or another reason for the irritation or inflammation.


Matheny expressed concern about the catcher's condition.


The expectation is that Molina will receive several days off to rest the ailing knee.

Finally a little winning mojo.

Anyone else see the Giants hit out of order? I have never ever seen that on a major league level.

Yeah I had a coach in the dugout who's only job was to watch the kids so they don't get out of order and keep the pitch count.
